Flutes Fantastique commissioned Howard Whitacker to compose a new work for flute quartet that included all members of the flute family. Suite for Flutes was premiered at the 1997 National Flute Association Convention in Chicago by Flutes Fantastique. Composed around an octotonic scale, Suite for Flutes challenges the listener to hear the theme as it twists and turns in the "Invention" and "Dance," mysteriously moves in the "Nocturne," and dances in the bass flute in the "Waltz."

Movements:
I. Invention
II. Nocturne
III. Waltz
IV. Dance
